Would the unicorn have to breed true? If the unicorns
did not have to be able to mate and create more
unicorns, it would be relatively easy and cost less
than $5 million US. Would Monsanto fund a 5 million
dollar grant proposal to make a unicorn or two? To
create a true-breeding unicorn at our current level of
understanding would be very difficult, cost much more,
and probably not succeed.
